Pullman's new Maldives property to include underwater aqua villas

07 Oct 2019
Pullman’s Maldives Maamutaa Resort will open two underwater aqua villas this November, exposing guests to the island’s vibrant marine life and coral reef during their stay.

The aqua villa’s bedrooms will be submerged within one of the Maldives’ largest blue lagoons, covering 1,700 hectares, surrounded by coral reefs which are home to 13 species of shark, turtles, dolphins and reef fish.

Comprised of 122 villas – either beachside, overwater or underwater – the hotel will be all-inclusive and spread across 18 hectares of landscaped garden in the Gaafu Alifu Atoll.

The resort is organised around four wellness pillars: sleep; sport; food; and spa, encouraging guests to improve wellbeing using the surrounding beauty and activity opportunities to balance these.

Pullman Maldives Maamutaa Resort will also open an exclusive guest accommodation, the Royal Suite. Described as a resort within a resort, the private villa will come with highly-personalised services.

The property will appeal to both diving and fitness enthusiasts, as the resort is home to 26 diving sites, multiple running trails around the island, and boot-camp experiences.

A range of activities are also available for young guests, including a playground and sports centre with snooker, table tennis, board games and a golf simulator.

Outdoor activities are also on offer at the resort, such as nature walks, treasure hunts and outdoor sports.

The resort’s overwater spa will have eight treatment rooms with a spa menu including massage therapies, body treatments and signature facials.

Phytomer has been chosen as the product house, the French brand manufactures products from marine ingredients.

The resort is home to six restaurants: Mélange, The Hub, Saffron Affair, Souq Oven, Sol Rising, and Phat Chameleon, one of the region’s first organic vegetarian and vegan dining experiences.

“Pullman Maldives Maamutaa Resort is a stunning addition to the premium segment and we look forward to welcoming global nomads to explore the spectacular Gaafu Alifu Atoll,” said Accor’s Patrick Basset.
